I have been to many Pei Wei's across the country and this is the best one. Absolutely great food, and good portions

Pei Wei is an Asian Diner, the food is made to order, but the restaurant is very casual, with open seating, you order your food, take your table number, and they bring it out when it's ready. Self-serve: drinks, condiments, and take-away containers. It's pretty similar to P.F. Chang's in food quality. There is a huge selection of entrees, all... More

I am a fan of PF Chang's and like it's smaller brother...Pei Wei. If you want consistent quality with an interesting twist...go here. I usually go for lunch and have the Mongolian Beef. It is great and I never have to worry if the Chef was different that day. The price is reasonable and it is quick.

Always good food here, love the manager girl she seems to run a really good team here . Food is consistent. Gets busy. Only complaint I have is sometimes the food is served staggered which isn't very nice if you eat out as a family and someone has to wait for their food. And they no longer do the curry!... More

We had known of this chain and so we decided to try it at this location in Sarasota. It was not what we expected. We were greeted by a long line for giving orders, which was held up waiting for tables to clear. The atmosphere was very rushed, noise and sterile. Everything is self serve including ordering the food, obtaining... More

This is a cut above most Asian Fast Food restaurants. The quality of the food is so good. This was my second time at the restaurant and the first for those with me. Nice, limited menu. You order like you would at any fast food restaurant and are given a number so that the staff can deliver your food to... More

Whenever we go to Pei Wei we always take out and not dine in. I find the restaurant not to be as clean as I would like and the tables that border the entrance do not have a buffer between you and other clients waiting to order so they are for all purposes too near my food. There should be... More

Stopped here for lunch after picking up our granddaughter,at Sarasota Airport. We were pleasantly surprised by the good service, quality of food, and the reasonable prices. The hot and sour soup was thick and rich, with just the right balance. My wife had the Thai chicken/ lettuce wrap, and she declared it "delicious". The portions are generous for the cost.... More

Visited on 3/11 at 1:55 pm. Wasn't sure what to order. AM cashier #2 (I think her name was Monica). Helped me match up the perfect Pei Wei meal! After my meal arrived, she stopped by to make sure everything was satisfactory. I have never had that happen at a "fast food" restaurant before. Kudos to her for going that... More
